Wine Review: This pale ice pink colored wine made from Gamay was very well received by all those that tried it. It opens with a faint Maraschino cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and fresh. The flavor profile is a mild strawberry and gentle mineral blend with a hint of watermelon and peach. The finish is dry and drifts away nicely. This Rose is a great value and a real quaffer that would pair well with a mahi-mahi sandwich. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Bellenos (pronounced buh-len-os) wines are the ideal introduction to Burgundy. Bright, charming, affordably priced and ready to drink. It is produced by Nicolas Potel at his Burgundy negociant company, Maison Roche de Bellene. This very expressive rose is pure Gamay Noir from Beaujolais. Beautifully clean, ripe fruit and minimal winemaking preserve the naturally fruity personality of the Gamay grape: vibrant red raspberry and cherry flavors, and the bright mineral edge that is typical of this area of Burgundy.
